I’ve been working on an hourly basis with EY for a couple of months on a project. I was supposed to start as full time in August but due to COVID my start date has been pushed to January. Should I wait for it or should I start looking for new jobs? My current project ends this month. Do you think they will delay for a second time or even rescind offers?

I go out on leave in 4 weeks, but am managing a behemoth of a project and feeling like I don’t have enough energy to keep going. Do I ask for help? Or will it be used against me during performance reviews? Note that this was given to me as a stretch role above my level.

Do participants see notifications when you share a specific window in zoom, not your screen? Asking for a friend who forgot to turn on do not disturb and maybe got a questionable text during a presentation to a client.
